Her yelling at you was totally unnecessary, but maybe she’s scared of dogs? Or at least the barking? Kudos to you for training your pup though!

This is why I live in a place without neighbors. lol

People are on glue. I’m sorry you have to deal with a ding-dong who should really mind their own and leave you to train your dog!

She probably didn’t understand what was going on. Training can be such a pain. But power on and ignore the idiots. Good luck!

LMAO.  Oh, sorry.  Some people.  We have next door neighbors with, I swear, 5 or 6 dogs.  Who bark, constantly.  You can hear them from inside their house, inside our house.  It’s insane.  Half of them are hounds.  Imagine.

Our dog – doesn’t bark.  Unless she think you’re really scary or a threat.  She’s barked at 3 people and a snowman – in her 2.5year life. We trained her to not bark, ever.  It’s awesome. 

So – when she goes out and I know the neighbors are outside with the dogs, I’ll yell things at her like “GOOD GIRL!  YOU JUST STAY QUIET LIKE A GOOD GIRL, IGNORE THOSE BAD DOGS!”  They ignore me, but it makes me a feel a little better.  🙂  Also when they scream “COME INSIDE!!” a hundred time and then finally just leave them outbecause they won’t, I just call her once and they loudly tell her what a good girl she is for coming so fast, here’s a big treat for her…

Sometimes I wonder if people just think dogs come fully trained.  Obviously we all want to have well behaved dogs but it doesn’t happen without working at it.

Maybe I am just strange, but a barking dog makes me want to exit the area immediately.

Did you let her know you were training them? Something like a quick” hey, I’m training my puppy it would help if you keep walking, thanks”

She may not have understood you were in the training phase, no everyone knows the ins and outs of pet ownership. If I saw someone telling a dog commands that the dog wasn’t obeying I’s assume the dog was misbehaving. When I was younger a dog barking at me on the street would cause me to freeze and stare at the dog. I was petrified because I had a dog chase me once when I walked by it and since wouldn’t take my eyes off one.

I didn’t mean to be bragging, I’m sorry if it came off that way.  It really is nice.  We did have to work REALLY hard to train it out of her when she was a puppy, but she was a good learner.  Some other people in our class (she was in training to be a service dog but washed out because of her allergies) had a LOT harder time with their dogs barking than we did. 

Even my mom, who got her dog 9 months old and full of bad habits at least has taught her to shut up when she says so.  You can’t stop a Spaniel from barking at some things, but she’ll eventually pipe down.  The neighbors, they drive me CRAZY because they just.don’t.care.  A dog barking a little, doesn’t bother me.  All night when I’m trying to sleep – not cool.
